Why is there an edit limit on post.?

Question

Please explain why there is a limit on the number of times one can edit their post.   I may want to add  additional comments or correct a statement made without adding a new post.

This is one thing that has really made the Cakewalk forums Great.

 

When you research a problem.. you don't have to scroll down to try and find the answers.

The person who starts the thread would simply edit their post a day later with their results.

Updating as more info is learned.

Found it! It was hidden in group settings.

It actually wasn't a number of edits limit, it was a time limit within which you could have poster's regret. This has been changed now.

I don't know. It's not intentional. Let me figure out later whether it can be changed, I'm sure it can be lifted.

The Edit option also seems to disappear entirely after a while too, which is bad if, for example, you reply to someone and then come back later in the day and realise you've given some bad advice and would like to correct it, but can't.

Hopefully this time without the vanish-o-matic filter.
I've had whole threads disappear when editing the original post on the old forum.

That was originally due to the aggressive spam filter. I know a lot of hosts had to go back and manually restore posts/threads when they saw it happening (and ironically getting blamed for censoring people sometimes 🤨)
